by mitt romney. picked up by john mccain. ever since they've been trying to exploit the murder of a united states ambassador and three other americans for cheap political gains and they are still at it and still trying to make a big point about the fact that when susan rice went on the sunday talk shows and gave what she said was preliminary information that would probably change might likely change the same information that was given to members of the senate, to members of the house and to the white house, they all had the very very, very same reports from our intelligence officers that republicans finding she was deliberately misleading the american people. they've been beating the drum ever since. it is false false false. it was gusting to see them do it yesterday. the secretary of state handled herself admirably. first of all, as she has done -- she was tough, she was patient but she didn't take any crap either. as she's done before, she said look the buck stops here. >> as i have said many times i take responsibility and nobody is more committed to getting this right. i'm determined t
john mccain is getting set for two hearings. first he met with former senator chuck hagel. said they were old friends and had a frank and candid exchange. mccain fell short of saying whether or not he would support hagel. second, the senator joked late tuesday that he will intensely question secretary of state nominee john kerry. >> and we will look forward to interrogating him at his hearing next week, mercilessly. we will bring back for the only time water boarding to get the truth out of him. >>> less than a month after a drunk driving accident that killed a teammate, dallas cowboys nose tackle jay ratliff was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated after his pickup truck sideswiped a tractor trailer truck. >>> and a company is interested in getting what they can out of asteroids. deep space industries say they hope to mine asteroids from metals and other valuable resource by 2020. really? >>> according to a new study, alcohol may help you fall asleep at least for an overall restless night. researchers find regardless of how much you drink, drinking can increase ti
didn't have all of those details republican senator john mccain today at this senate hearing was blistering in terms of these questions. take a listen. what was the president's activities during that seven hour period? on the anniversary of the worst attack in american history september 11th, we didn't have the department of defense forces available for seven hours. two brave americans died in the last hour. >> now, one other question that is still remains after these hearings today is whether or not the white house can claim that al qaeda has been disseminated when clearly the terrorist group is still launching attacks in northern africa and elsewhere. the secretary answered that by saying we have taken out the core leadership like usama bin laden. can you kill the leader and their affiliates just seem to keep growing, shep? >> shepard: ed henry at the white house. thanks. it looks like the u.s. government will indeed be able to keep paying the bills at least for a few more months. the house of representatives today voted to raise the debt ceiling until the middle of may. se
campaigned in terms of his broader rhetoric during the presidential campaign against john mccain on the notion he was going to transform the way the u.s. conducted its foreign policy around the world. he then proceeded to double down on some of the greatest successes of the bush administration. if you look at the use of the state secrets privilege or the with the obama administration expanded the drone wars, powered special operations forces from jsoc to join special operations command to operate in countries where the united states is not at war, if you look at the way the obama administration essentially boxed congress out of any effective oversight role of the covert aspect of u.s. foreign policy, what we really have is a president who has normalized for many, net -- many liberals, the policies they once opposed under the bush and ministration. this has been a war presidency. yesterday as president obama talked about how we don't need a state of perpetual war, multiple u.s. drone strikes in yemen, a country we are not at war with, where the u.s. has killed a tremendous number
a contributor for us. representative tancredo, john mccain is part of this bipartisan drupe. like i said, a lot of people together you wouldn't expect to be standing together. but here's what he said about why republicans have to do this deal and do this deal now. >> elections. elections. the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that there are many issues in which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens, but this is a preeminent issue for those citizens. >> obviously, when you look at the election last time, president obama got 71% of the latino vote. mitt romney, 27%. is john mccain right? >> no, he really isn't. he's no more right this time than he was back in, what, '87, when he and another gang tried to put together a very similar bill. he and a member of that time of it was called the mccain-kennedy bill. very similar in every respect to what i have seen so far. i must admit i haven't seen the whole thing. from what i heard about it, very similar. at any rate, it's the same rhetoric, and it's just as wrong today as it was then. the
budget. senator john mccain, a critic of the administration's response to the attacks, said clinton's answers were unsatisfactory. secretary clinton connected what happened in benghazi to the rise of al qaeda splinter groups in mali and the recent attacks in algeria. senator john kerry is likely to be asked how he would have addressed those threats as the next secretary of state. his confirmation hearings begin today at 10:00 a.m. margaret brennan, cbs news, washington. >>> that bitter cold snap is expected to continue into the weekend. more snow in chicago today where the high is expected to hit a balmy 23 degrees. the frigid arctic air mass brought numbing below zero windchills that forced schools to close and posed transportation problems. and the bitter cold has moved to the northeast. this mountain in new york city froze in the single-digit temperatures. windchill warnings have been posted across upstate new york and new england. a slight warmup is expected by the end of the weekend though. it would be beautiful if it wasn't so ugly outside, right? >>> wel

paul, and this is also a look at -- the faces of the republicans, rand paul, ron johnson and john mccain looked so pathetic. and to me, there's something called decorum. and when rand paul sits there and to the second highest ranking official in our country and someone who has done a spectacular job says i would have had your job, that's pathetic. that's the amateur hour. and that's the republicans. >> willie. >> he's got a right to challenge her on it. he's not supposed to sit there. >> that is nir jtheir job. >> and just celebrate you. >> i would have relieved you of your duty? >> that's an idiot. >> kelly o'donnell, you were up on the hill yesterday. aside from all the fireworks, we saw some good pieces of videotape there. did we learn anything new actually about what happened on september 11th in benghazi? is there any new information to come out of that hearing? >> well, there were some threads and details that were interesting, i thought. secretary clinton talked about the fact that they did not have access to the surveillance video that showed what went on for a period of weeks. i

on the right. republicans really got absolutely crushed by gop primary voters. case in point was john mccain, standing right behind ted kennedy during that press conference. how did this come to pass? the november elections. we saw the numbers. it has been talked about and talked about since then, the fact that latino voters have been going up as a percentage of the electorate and republicans got fewer than they have in three presidential elections. so it was a real wake-up call we're told, particularly to republicans like john mccain and lindsey graham of south carolina, who had kind of been working on comprehensive immigration reform on and off again. lindsey graham called chuck schumer. they had the first of five meetings. some were after the election. and they set in motion this process, a timetable to have principles now, the end of january, legislative language in march and they hope to have some kind of vote in the senate before the august recess. >> let's talk about the timing of this announcement here. the president was -- he's going to go to vegas tomorrow and is supposed to outlin

, you heard from senator john mccain saying that, quote, he would have like to have seen some outreach in the president's marks, senator john thune of south dakota calling it "mostly 30,000 foot stuff" he, referring to the president, "wasn't doing the kind of outreach he needs to do if he wants to get things accomplished in the second term" and senator susan collins republican of maine chiming in, she had hoped the president's speech would be a little less partisan than it was at times. we heard the pushback in social media particular attention to a comment ali line about the nati of takers and apparent swipe at former gop opponent mitt romney. while a lot of people are celebrating the president's remarks and where the president plans to take the country over the next four years, some concern as well especially from republicans, carol. >> dan, this was also the first time a sitting president addressed the topic of gay marriage in an inaugural address. listen to what the president said. >> our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under
, four democrats, charles schumer, dick durbin, and republicans include john mccain and marco rubio. it includes pathway to citizenship provided the borders are secured. reforming the current system to attract the best and brightest. an employment verification system. improving the process for admitting workers in the future. all four of those things could be a huge stumbling block. it comes one day before the president himself announces his own immigration proposal. spoke earlier with congressman luis gutierrez, a democrat from illinois. and congressman mario diaz-balart, a republican from the state of florida. here's what he said. congressman, gutierrez, i'm going to begin with you if i can. you met with the president on friday. did he know this was coming? of that list that we've talked about, points that are likely in this proposal, what do you think is the biggest sticking point? >> well, look, he did know, and the important thing of friday's meeting, quite honestly, is that the president said he's going to make this his top priority, his number one priority. just so we have it

's right, john mccain tried, too, then had to back away when he ran for the republican nomination. the president in talking to his aides, his advisors this morning thinks on immigration he has an opportunity here in part because of his electoral victory. republicans looked at that said, we can no longer continue as a party that has such dismal showing with minorities and young voters. we have to improve our position on the yes of immigration. former florida governor jeb bush said that during the last republican campaign during the last presidential campaign. so the president thinks that by that outside pressure will create a condition where republicans will be willing to work with him. so he's putting pressure from the outside but then saying and thinking according to this advisor, that he really can make common cause with some republicans in the senate and in particular to do something big on immigration. >> john, thank you. bill whitaker, our correspondent in los angeles has been watching today's events along with a group of latinos who voted for mr. obama. bill, what are they
. a lot of people feel that would be beneath presidential inaugural speech. john mccain said i've been to seven of these and usually it's all about extending the hand across the aisle. that wasn't in this particular speech. in the "wall street journal" today, they write, we want the president to succeed because we all succeed as a country if that happens, but the second term breaks down to rancor and gridlock, it's very clear, it will be for republicans, i'm in your face. >> brian: what i did enjoy is seeing his family. he's a great family man, does a great job with the girls. to see their excitement. >> steve: it was a beautiful day for america. that's how it works here. >> gretchen: more people turned out than expected. so that was also an interesting emblematic of the election. >> steve: it's now 11 minutes after the top of the hour. don't pass a budget, don't get paid. that's the message that some lawmakers are proposing in order to get things moving in washington. will that make things budge is this we're going to talk about that next. >> brian: look at this. he's wrestling crocod
, it could happen. we have know in the past, like even people like cindy mccain, the wife of john mccain, back in 2008, she wound up in a sling because of a bad strong handshake on a campaign line. so it's been known to happen and claims have been paid out. i think it's a really tough one. i think you just got to be careful. but the guy's got to work for a living and says he has a problem ever since it happened. >> gretchen: yeah. it kind of reminds me of that hot coffee thing and starbucks. like don't you know coffee's hot? here is question number three, my nephew has been going to a methadone clinic to get off drugs for eight years. he asked the clinic to lower his dose and they refused. could they sue him for keeping them on this drug? n this is a really interesting one. this would be in the realm of medical malpractice, meaning the doctor or the clinic acted in a way that deviated from the community standards in terms of the way that people should be treated. i am bringing and our firm is bringing a similar suit here in new york state right now. a man who died as a result of a doctor
